The 19th CHRISTMAS by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro is one of the best Women's Murder Club Novels yet. A smart, wily bad guy goes for a big score on Christmas Day. Prior to that he clandestinely let's the SFPD know it's coming and then in the days leading up to Christmas, keeps providing misdirection-style clues about where the big score is going to happen and his identity. Keeps the police running around following up on leads that are all over the place. Great character development and good follow through with the main characters of this series of books - including a fun surprise for Molinari (and Boxer) at the end. Enjoy. PS - also the book is a good reminder that while most of us are enjoying Christmas Day, the police (and all other first responders) are working. Thanks to all of those who do.
